Crowded classrooms like this one can’t possibly accommodate the hundreds of students
hoping to attend.

The parents and teachers of Robanda know that education is the key to giving their children a better future. But although this growing community has hundreds of students eager to learn, right now too many students walk between 2 and 3 miles each way to school, leaving no time for homework, or sleep 6 to 8 in one set of bunk beds in the overcrowded dormitories – conditions that make learning almost impossible. 

We’re committed to giving these students the space they need to learn and grow.

Partnering with the forward-thinking community leaders of Robanda, FoTZC has agreed to fund a new 80-bed dormitory with comfortable beds and sanitary toilet facilities. The generosity of two donors has brought us $25,000 of the way to our $75,000 goal.  And here's more good news: a generous matching challenge grant from the Drollinger Family Charitable Foundation means every dollar you invest in Robanda’s future will be doubled until we reach our goal.  Just designate “Education” when you make your donation.
